Revolutionary’s Traumatic Memory

Revolutionaries, seeing the failure of the Qing, reaffirmed their belief that the dynasty should be overturned

They evoked historical memory to persuade people to “drive out the barbarians”--the Manchus

Urged people to recall what the Manchus had done to Han Chinese

Used the slogan; “Yangzhou’s ten days; Jiading’s three butcherings” to remind Han people of the horror of Manchu atrocities and raised nativist hopes of rekindling the will to resist Manchu rule

Many cities witnessed large-scale massacre and slaughter that terminated million people’s lives and further reduced Chinese population
